    WHO WERE THE PIRATES? Daring figures who swooped on treasure ships and returned home with golden cargoes? Brutal sea-thieves who showed no mercy to their victims? Bold adventurers who financed travel by nautical theft? In fact they were all these things and more. The term "pirate" means simply "one who plunders on the sea", but those who led this life fell into several categories: "privateers" were sea-raiders with a government licence to pillage enemy ships; "buccaneers" were 17th-century pirates who menaced the Spanish in the Caribbean; "corsairs" were privateers and pirates who roved the Mediterranean. In the words of Bartholomew Roberts (p. 39), all were lured by the promise of "plenty..., pleasure..., liberty and power".
